SWING TING

‘Junction’ - a six track EP produced entirely by Samrai & Platt - features vocalists from Jamaica, Ireland & the UK and rounds off an excellent 12 months for the label & crew who’ve toured across North America, Mexico and Europe in 2017.

The set kicks off with ST favourite Alexx A-Game (originally voiced at his studio in Kingston in 2016) urging listeners to ‘free up’ their mind and souls and let the ‘good times take control’. It sets the tone for upcoming Jamaican talent Blvk H3ro to step up on the soulful party number ‘Can’t Wait’ (recorded at Equiknoxx’s studios in Vineyard Town in 2016), which has been a staple in Swing Ting sets over the last 18 months.

Slowing the pace is ‘Addiction’, a link up with Irish artist and frequent Murlo collaborator Gemma Dunleavy who lays down an impressive vocal over the skittering drums, muted guitar and glistening keys. The listen is interrupted momentarily for an interlude from Gavsborg whose moving voicemail is accompanied by a poignant piano line from JP aka Without Understanding. One for the clubs - ‘Turn it Up’ features Equiknoxx’s Shanique Marie riding a stripped funky-esque riddim with ease.

Fittingly the set closes with ‘Contagious’ which finds two of Manchester’s finest vocalists - Fox & Tyler Daley searching for an escape from the reality of our turbulent times over a refined yet sparkling production. The 12” vinyl will be limited to 200 copies.

Support from: Murlo, Toddla T, Jamz Supernova, HDD & Equiknoxx across NTS Radio & BBC Radio 1 / 1xtra.

Ltd 12" Info: Limited edition, full picture sleave

Please form an orderly queue... MCR's Swing Ting follow up the imperative 2017 single "Braver" with their second 7" release. First heard on the Equiknoxx Music Fader mix this dub of "Fly Away" features Gavsborg on the boards dubbing & scrubbing things good and rotten launching dancehall deejay Alozade's vocals into another dimension along with wayward cymbals & wonky hats. Included is the fiery OG vocal version.

It's another essential joint from the label and sure to fly out. You need to move quick on this one crew!

300 copies.

Matt says: Phwwooooarr! Launching 2018 with militant precision, Swing Ting offer up this incendiary, future-dancehall cut from Equiknoxx and Gavsbourg. Destined to get more well received plays than the impending Superbowl this is one club cut you don't wanna miss.

Alexx A-Game makes his return to Swing Ting after last year’s ‘A-Game Everyday’ & ‘Gangsters’ with the soulfully poignant ‘Braver’. The 7” is the 1st physical drop on this upcoming Manchester label (which spawns from the institutional and long-running clubnight of the same name), following the well-received "Equiknoxx" & "Madd Again!" releases in 2017. In 2015 Swing Ting’s Samrai & Platt received a tune from Alexx’s manager, "Braver" asking if they’d be able to contribute to the production on the track. Listening to the stems, it became apparent how amazing Alexx’s vocal delivery sounded stripped to just the Rhodes & bassline played by frequent A-Game collaborator & fellow Jamaican Vern Hill. After adding effects and flourishes the crew began playing the "Smooth Edit" on Swing Ting radio shows and at DJ sets around the globe. Requests to release the track followed from revered selectors, followers, and musical peers alike. The bittersweet number seemed to particularly resonate with Manchester-based DJs and crews such as Konny Kon (Children of Zeus / Broke’n’£nglish), Murlo & the Levelz family who’ve championed the tune over the last 12 months.
